I basically make about $6,000k-$8,000k a month online. It's enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 10k-13k hours a week from home. This is how to start•• MAX47.COM

Ravenman I agree with you the Drivers who kill should be prosecuted for vehicular manslaughter/homocide.

They always say, "I didn't see that motorcycle". Well, WAKE UP! I've been the victim of a clueless driver making a left turn in front of me while on a motorcycle, claimed he didn't see me although I'm 6'3" and was on a large BMW bike. Drivers who kill should be prosecuted for vehicular manslaughter/homocide depending on the circumstances. Then maybe drivers would wake the f#€k up!

SO PEOPLE DON'T BE BLAMING THE MOTORCYCLE DRIVERS FOR EVERYTHING.

My condolences to the family of the rider. Denton; You're right about these bikes going too fast,and just being ABLE to reach 150+. With speed limits everywhere below 80,what possible good is a bike that goes almost TWICE as fast? And how ironic that MOST buyers of these bikes are NOT older,seasoned riders but young,less skilled and less experienced riders. I think assigning a special license to ride bikes capable of 100 mph or more,with more intense skill testing and a Psych-Evaluation (Some riders just aren't "mature" enough in their thinking and attitudes to safely ride a fast bike.) would be a good move. rip37; The "Left Turn" driver is probably the most dangerous threat to riders in traffic,and vans in particular are notorious for poor visibility. This is one place where being more VISIBLE helps a rider a lot. I run my headlight as well as two 5-3/4 inch amber halogen fog lights any time I'm in traffic,and it really helps me to be noticed by oncoming traffic. As much as that,though,I "expect" every driver to cut across in front of me-some drivers probably SEE me but their brains don't process the information. Ronin 055; I agree-I'd like to see more info,but I'm sure they have to be pretty careful what information goes out to the public especially when there's an investigation going on. If an article was to indicate guilt or assign blame before all the legalities are over,and it went to Trial,it could poison the jury and witness's testimony and cause a mistrial.

Problem is that these motorcycles are so fast that they just fly around like flies. Now of course people in cars know there safe and if they do have a collision they will just go for it figuring the motorcycle will jump them evil kenevil style. They dont call them donor mobiles for nothing the street vibrations has so many of these loud fast people on rockets breaking all types of laws the # 1 being speed as they fly as fast on the straight roads and on highways 100+ is slow for these daredevils.
